    I'm looking to do some video editing on my iPad with the home videos i have esp when I'm on the road. Would anyone have any recommendations? Thanks.

    I don't know any, but I have the feeling Apple is working on iMovie for iPad.

    I would recommend buying a laptop. Single core processor with 256mb of ram and a lack of a file system makes video editing hard

    There's an app for that. ReelDirector. It's a great app.

    Why do people seem set on turning the iPad into a production device. Its clearly a consumption device and very weak in other arenas. A laptop is for production.

    Wow, that's an impressive app. iPad version submitted for approval according to the summary.

    Now just need to figure out how to get the files on the iPad :D

    Even remoting in proved to have its issues when messing around with a video editor on the desktop lol

    Think outside the box... the same was argued against laptops just 10 years ago.

    That's not true at all. In 2000 I had a Sony Vaio laptop that I used to edit a music video that was #1 on MTV in several countries.

    Touch screen and video editing seem to go hand in hand for sure but it won't be on the iPad. If we are talking about clipping videos and adding some simple FX, that is another story but we won't see anything robust, the platform can't handle it.

    Video Edition and iPad

    While I'm traveling around, I can make short, short videos with my Nikpn, transfer them to my iPad, clean them up and send them to family and friends.

    So are sony portable devices and gaming systems like the psp -- ahead of its time in multimedia -- that cost half the price and allow external storage upgrades.

    #12 - no ipad specific version yet, but I suggest you try the FREE version, Reel Director is awfully slow, no preview as you go unlike Splice.

    Is there a way to take videos with your iphone camera and sync them or transfer them wirelessly to the ipad folder in one of these apps? Or, if not folder something like Dropbox but for video and images?

    There's an app called Pic Transfer which I have on both devices, lets you transfer photos/movies between devices via wifi or bluetooth.

    Photo Transfer is the best app if you only need Wifi

    Do both of these qpps work with even longer movies you captured?

    I would use something like file browser that allows you pick a file from your network and open in a program of your choice.
